you know, that is very amazing. i find it very, very amazing. and like i told you, i mean, if i was young and i have to do it all over again, yes, i think i would go into forensics the talks have resumed between north and south korea but even as top official try to defuse the tensions, their militaries remain on high alert. heroes and a villain. the three americans who stopped a terror attack on a train in paris earned the world praise. we're learning more about the suspected gunman. and this. >> it's very, very, bad, we are a people, not animals. >> a separate situation -- a
desperate situation as dozens of refugees flood into macedonia try to find somewhere to call home in europe. i'm george howell. this is cnn "newsroom." ♪ good day to you. we begin this hour here in korea. the demilitarized zone. round two is under way of talks, this effort to prevent war from breaking out. delegates from both north and south korea met for ten hours on saturday, even as talks resumed, trying to ease these tensions, their militaries remain on high alert. kathy novak has the latest. set the scene for us about the hopefulness of these talks even with both militaries standing at the ready. >> well, hope that these men are talking at all, george.
they wrapped up at 4:00 a.m. yesterday with no agreement. they are back. they have been talking about an hour and a half now, and it's very rare to see people of this high level get together at the historic armistice village. the fact that thesis people were coming together yesterday right after pyongyang set a deadline saying south korea had to stop its campaign of psychological war fare using propaganda speakers to blast messages across the border or they would attack. at the same time there's this build up going on. south korea's military remains on high alert. north korea is amassing its troops. it's doubled the number of artillery forces along the front lines and has also reported to have 70% of its submarine capability away from base, and
the other thing george is, you'll recall, little signs of hope even coming out of the communication of the state news agency kcna where for the first time it referred to south korea to its official name, the republic of korea. it's gone back to its old way. it's referring to it's the puppet war amongers and references the utilizes as the united states is planning a surprise attack under the guise of a joint military exercises that are going on here between the u.s. and south korean forces. a lot of things at play here, george. >> as far as talking those things at play on the negotiating table, as we understand, south korea kbern the land mine incident and north korea about the speakers.
is that the scope or is it broader from what you are able to determine? >> well, we're told what was discussed yesterday was an attempt to defuse the recent tensions. they starthd with the august 4th land mine explosions that badly injured two south korean soldiers. north korea denies planting the land mines but south korea went ahead with its retaliation in the form of these propaganda speakers which angered north korea and we also know about the exchange of shells at the border. the unitification minister from the south korean side and kim jung un, there seems to be a sign there may be more on the table than just the recent
defense-related tensions but also wider issues such as family reunions, such as the sanctions that south korea has against north korea. we don't know for sure what they are talking about. it's all behind closed doors. that's the suggestion. since it's rare so get these men together, there's more to talk about than just the land mines and the propaganda speakers for us, george. >> thank you so much for your reporting and we will stay in touch with you. four men who stopped an attack on a paris-bound train are being hailed as heroes and we're learning more about the suspect that they shut down. ayoub el khazzani, a moroccan national, is accused of trying to open fire on the passengers aboard. we have more. >> there was a big cheer as the motorcade drove them out of the police station. they have been here all day with the police helping them with
their investigation. spencer stone getting surgery on his hand. this is how the british passenger on the train paid tribute to these three young americans. >> what i would like to do, first of all, is to say thank you to alexander skarlatos and spencer stone without whom i think we probably wouldn't be here to speak to you today. >> the investigation getting more information about the attacker, a 26-year-old moroccan had been under the eyes of counterterrorism officials here in france, spain, and also in belgium to the north. we now know he got on the train in belgium with weapons. we understand from the belgian authorities, they believe this young 26-year-old more rock couldn't has ties and connections to hard line
islamist groups. now we understand from european counterterrorism officials they believe this mock rock -- more rock couldn't had gone from europe to turkey. they are concerned about -- french authorities holding this young moroccan at security headquarters in paris. they have 96 hours for which they can hold him and continue the investigation, but for the three young americans, anthony sadler, alek skarlatos and spencer stone now heroes in this country, we saw it right here on the streets outside this police station. let's talk more about this story and for more let's get some context from the terrorism is expert with the asia pacific foundation. he joins us live. good to have you with us, sir. when we look at what happened here this was a crisis averted but what do you take away from
this attempted attack? we know this attack has not been classified yet as an act of terrorism, i want to under score yet. the gunman was at least sympathetic to isis. >> this is another example of an attack, where the intention it to kill and maim as many people as possible, a mass casualty attack. the important element to this is there's a connection to belgium. we've seen a lot of plots in the last year where gunmen have obtained their weapons from belgium. it becomes a major concern how they are able to travel through several countries and take weapons with them. >> within recent weeks there has been talk among security
officials that isis was looking to extend its reach with more of these lone wolf type attacks or to basically get more sympathyizers involved in their efforts. >> very much so. you can draw this to a pattern that has emerged, starting with the individual who carried out the attacks in france shortly after the "charlie hebdo" shootings. even though the two could not be directly linked, he got his weapons from belgium. then a couple of days after that attack, belgian authorities discovered in their country that there was a huge arms cache in a flat in the country in which those individuals were connected to isis and yet again in this example there may be links, not direct, but ideological links to isis, illustrating a very
dangerous pattern that's meernling -- emerging in europe. >> when it comes to attacks like we saw that was shut down in this case, as you mentioned these other attacks, what can be done? you see in this case, several brave people stepping in, but what more can be done among security officials to try to, you know, stop these before they happen? >> we are very lucky that this has not turned into an attack where scores of people were killed. it's fortunate that we're talking about just injuries, but the thing that worries me the most is that this incident took place on a trans national railway network. now, why weren't there proper security checks done at the belgian end where this individual got on board with weapons. this is something that needs to be reviewed and looked at and it is also an illustration that perhaps acts of terrorism have now altered in terms of strategy
and tactic. it's not about boarding planes, trying to bring down airliners. it's maybe now about targeting the railway system where security is lax, minimal, nonexistent. that is something that urgently needs to look at, it's not going to be every day that passengers will stop an attack from happening. >> it's certainly important to keep in touch with folks like yourself with your insight and security officials will be on top for this. thank you so much for your insights and we will stay in touch with you. investigators are looking at a deadly accident on an air show in england. all caught on tape. this vintage aircraft crashed on a busy main road near the air field. the pilot survived but remains in critical condition. seven other people died. our owneeian lee filed this
report. >> reporter: the flags behind me are at half-staff where the accident happened. now the process of piecing this crash together, the jet, a hawker hunter was just beginning its part of the air show. taking off. it started a loop but couldn't pull up in time. a witness telling me they could tell something was wrong. it just didn't have enough speed. fans here watched as it crashed into a major highway, killing at least seven people and injuring 15. >> stay in your places, please. we'll be getting the emergency services in soon. just stay where you are, please. >> reporter: miraculously the pilot survived the initial crash and was pulled out of the wreckage. the police haven't released his name yet. this hawker hunter was really the pride of the show, a 60-year-old fighter jet that was
billed as the best-looking aircraft ever built. authorities have asked anyone with videos of the crash to send it in, as it could help them determine what happened. sadly, this is a community already in mourning. earlier this month, another pilot died at an air show north of here. his funeral was just two days ago. you are watching cnn "newsroom" and there are new developments in the migrant crisis. we take you live to rome for the latest on the rescue mission in the mediterranean sea. plus, macedonian authorities could not holdback the refugees. and we look into the story of twin typhoons barreling

ma killed at least 20 people and that number is expected to rise. that video there shows you the scene. more explosions could be heard after the initial attack on saturday northeast of damascus. reuters reports 50 bodies have been pulled from the rubble and many people there remain buried. a monitoring group says the syrian regime does the shelling. syria has repeatedly denied that it attacks its own civilians. thousands of refugees, most of them fleeing that conflict in syria that you just saw are moving further into europe through serbia. this map that you see shows the regions that most of them are traveling through. the migrants once stranded in greece stormed through the police lines at the border with macedonia on saturday. they have been camped out without shelter since macedonia sealed its borders off on
thursday. our arwood damon takes you there. >> reporter: it is the pain of parents who thought they were saving their children, hardly able to comprehend that this is the europe they risked their lives for. >> we are so scared for our kids as he cradles her five month-old. there was little shelter from the torrential trains and no one to help them. what was an easy crossing for refugees, most from syria's war is no more. macedonia declaring a state of emergency thursday temporarily shut it down, leaving them abandoned crushed against the razor wire on the greek side. a gentle comforting touch is few can offer to their child.
>> look at this girl, he says, in syria, she was an angel. now she is homeless and treated like an animal. she is feverish and listless. people here are so angry, so upset. they can't believe that this is happening to them. in europe, everyone who we have been speaking to here has been stuck in these conditions for the last four days. this woman is pregnant. this man has had two heart surgeries, and over there, a woman who says that her child also is running a massive fever. macedonian police opened the board are for a few at a time. they stumble through, tightly gripping their children's arms. some collapse and are carried off. panic swells. young men throw themselves across.
other refugees decide to make a run for it, bottling through any opening they find, as macedonian police launch this. in the chaos, families lose each other. this woman got her son across but she was pushed back. he's gone. i don't know. i can't see him she sobs. she's not alone in her soul-wrenching agony. echoes of misery too profound for words. cnn on the greece macedonia border. and the italian navy is also working to rescue 3,000 migrants in the mediterranean sea. the italian coast guard says nearly two dozen boats asked for help on saturday. crews are still trying to reach
some vessels there. our senior international correspondent ben weeterman is on the story. what are you hearing this hour? >> what we understand this was just yesterday around 3,000 people in the crosses of being rescued in the mediterranean off the libyan coast now involved in this rescue operation was not only the italian coast guard, the navy, the finance police, but also a ship from norway and another ship from doctors without borders or msf, now we understand that this took place fairly close to the libyan coast yesterday, the seas were calm after a few days of being rough which perhaps explains why so many police were on the seas yesterday. now, it appears, of course, the numbers are increasing. so far this year about 104,000
people have reached the italian shores compared to 170,000 last year. now the italian navy and other authorities are struggling with this number and this influx, of course, is resulting in some unhappiness among italian politicians. we heard right-wing politicians yesterday saying that the italian navy has been too forward. it's going too close to the libyan coast and sebl doing the job of the human traffickers. other italian politicians are suggesting that the refugees not even be allowed to reach italian soil. that they simply be put up, fed, and taken care on disused italian oil rigs in the mediterranean. george. >> countries trying to deal with the influx of people that are looking for safer lives, ben, thank you so much for your reporting there. one of the two typhoons
currently churning churning in the pacific oceans has claimed ten lives in the philippines. typhoon goni has strengthened. it brought with it floods, landslides and even tornadoes. it is set to hit japanese islands in the next 48 to 72 hours and typhoon asani is also moving across the water but isn't expected to hit land. let's go straight to meteorologist allison charchar. >> it's very interesting to note in a few frames we go from what looked like a very weakening storm as it started to cross over typhoon to having a eye wall in the center. asani is over open water and is
not expected to have much of an impact on land unless you count maybe seven days from now as it would approach the aleutian islands. goni remains the focus right now as it begins to barrel down on parts of eastern taiwan and the northern end of the island near taip taipei, and strengthening winds up to 165 kilometers per hour. much stronger than we were just an hour ago. here's a along at the track. it should make its way toward okinawa in less than 24 hours. continuing up toward japan and the korean peninsula within 48 to 72 hours, by the time it gets up there, it is expected to hit considerably. more in terms of forecast accumulation, we expect to see an additional 100 to 150 millimeters of rain over parts of taiwan. again, here is a look at yulan with waves crashing down in the
harbor. we're keeping an eye for severe weather possible for sunday and monday in parts of europe. you can see the orange and red areas near bordeaux, this is the biggest area of threat that we have in terms of damaging winds, up around 100 kilometers per hour with these, they could experience some pretty widespread power outages with a lot of trees down as well and large hail, in excess of golf ball size. here's the winds as they wrap into spain and into paris. some of those winds coming through there, 90 to 100 kilometers, pushing into the western edge of germany and also into belgium. now the fires in the western united states keeping a close eye, one good news, the temperatures a lot of these places are expected to come down the next few days, including seattle and portland, spokane, high temperatures not nearly as bad. also, the winds over in this area are expected to stay low. you can see the strongest winds
have actually shifted over the high plains of the united states, leaving winds in the nest where firefighters are trying to battle it in the northwest. >> i used to work in the news business in washington state. i cover those fires when. when the weather conditions change to become better, that helps the firefighter. that's great news. thank you so much. you are watching cnn "newsroom." a reopening four years in the making, trashed by a mob in 2011, britain's embassy reopens in tehran and iran reopens theirs in london. that story as this broadcast continues around the world this hour on cnn international and cnn usa. , cry-proof, stay-proof look? neutrogena® makeup remover does. it erases 99% of your most stubborn makeup
>> welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world, this is cnn "newsroom." good to have you with us. i'm george howell. the headlines we're following this hour. round two of high-level talks between north and south korea are underway. pyongyang wants seoul to stop its pro democracy propaganda broadcasts while south korea blames the north for a land mine explosion that wounded two south korean soldiers. will he be anone thousands protest against the government for not cleaning up the gar garage in the capital city. beirut has been left with mounting piles of garbage because politicians can't agree
on where to dump it. the french president, francoise hollandee plans to meet with three americans who stopped an attack on a train. let's get back to our top story, these high-level talks that are taking place this hour in the demilitarized zone. >> kim jung unn. one face appears prominently. the 60-year-old is this man walking beside kim's side. joining the leader on the private jet. general wong is the newest
international deputy. if there was anyone that kim jung un would send it's wong. he rocketed from simple desk job to a four-star general, director of the korean people's army despite having little known military experience. his top negotiator with the outside world. >> he can speak with the authority of kim jung un. this is as high as you can go and he has the longest history or the best idea about what kim you don't think un wants and what he's hoping to get out of it. so this is very significant that he is actually there. >> if wong is the regimes new blood, the man next to him is the tie to north korean history. he has been a steady face.
kim, a regime survivor, living through the dictators purge or execution of unwanted advisers. his appearance may signal this. the north korea doesn't want to get rid of south korea's propaganda speakers at dmz, negotiators may talk about the topic of family reunions or sanctions imposed on north korea. today, the two men are a glimpse into an isolated regime stepping into a rare meeting of a divided people. just a short time ago, british foreign secretary phillip hammond reopened his country's embassy in terrain. it had been closed since november of 2011. that's when demonstrators ransacked it in protest. iran is also reopening its embassy in london. let's go to london for more on
what we're about to see. fred, first of all, talk to us about the symbolism and significance of what we are seeing in tehran and soon to see in london. >> it's interesting, george, that all of this is happening simultaneously and this is happening at this point in time. the big symbolism is, of course, that all of them is part of the larger thaw after the iran and the west nuclear agreement was reached. you can see foreign ministers pouring into the capital. now you have phillip hammond the british foreign secretary who is there as you said opening that embassy and at the same time the iranians are opening the embassy here. on the one hand you have that general thaw between iran and the west, but you also have a thaw particularly between the brits and iranians which something has been a quite a while in the making. the two sides have been looking
to reopen each other's embassies in their respective countries. there's been technical issues that kept them from doing that. the brits want a slice of the economic pie that many think will be available, and iran is in dire need of investment. you are talking about high technology, airplanes, and hydrocarbon sector, there is a huge economic factor to all of this. big symbolism, especially after the iranian protesters raided the british embassy there in tehran in 2011, that, of course, was a reaction to the european union and britain slapping sanctions on the iranians because of their nuclear program. it was something back then that was quite controversial in iran as well. even the supreme leader of iran criticized the protesters actually entering the embassy and that, of course, was what
set the relations between iran and britain and the united kingdom astray. so you now it looks in that general thaw that's been going on world wide with the iranians and many other countries, that they are restoring their diplomatic relations as well. this is a very key, symbolic and important step. >> fred, thank you so much for your insight on what we're about to see take place and what we have already seen there in tehran. now in the united states there are rumors swirling about joe biden and his possible bid for the presidency. in a surprise move on saturday, the vice president made a last-minute trip in washington for a private meeting. his official schedule said he would be at his home. we have the latest signs on that biden may be considering a 2016 run for president. >> hi there, we're getting these
details from my colleague. we know the vice president met with elizabeth warren in massachusetts. it's interesting because senator warren has become something of a liberal icon. she has a lot of fans, fans who were pushing her to make a run for the white house in 2016. she is going to sit this election out but she hasn't endorsed any candidate and so we don't know what biden and warren discussed but we do know that bide p has told his associates that he's going to make a decision about whether to make a third run for the presidency in the next month. he's got to decide by october 1st. we know that biden is watching this race very closely. he's got to see the appeal of another liberal senator, bernie sanders, inspiring huge crowds. he's got to look at the numbers.
hillary clinton's unfavorability ratings. 53% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of hillary clinton, versus just 44% for joe bid biden. i should also mention in that poll more than half of democratic voters say that biden should get into the race. but of course it's a big decision. running for president requires organization and fundraising. he feels he could be a good president. we'll all be waiting to see what that decision is in about a month or so. athena jones there. you are watching cnn "newsroom." still to come in this hour, in the northwestern part of the united states, an area bigger than london and paris combined, it is on fire. firefighters are calling for help. how local citizens are answering that call.

welcome back to cnn "newsroom." we now know that environmental protection agency managers had advanced warning about a toxic water spill in the u.s. state of colorado. according to newly released documents, a contractor told the agency more than a year ago and again this past may that a spill could happen. earlier this month, three million gallons of wastewater poured out of an abandoned mine. the toxic water then spread into utah and new mexico. nearly 160,000 hectares are burning into the north central part of washington state. u.s. president obama has declared a state of emergency in washington state. the weather is seeming to make a difference now. at least 110 buildings have burned down. earlier this week, three firefighters lost their lives
trying to fight these fires. a national incident management team has arrived to look into the deaths of those firefighters. multiple firefighters -- fires, i should say, across that state mean that fires and their resources -- firefighter resources are stretched to the limit and that is forcing the department of natural resources to do something it has never done before, calling on citizens to help out. this report from our affiliate komo-4 has more. >> it was big, black smoke boiling. it was just boiling. >> just outside this area, a fast-moving wildfire moved on to couple's property they never imagined. >> i called my kids and said we don't think that we're going to get out. that we love them. to tell everybody we love them. >> today, the couple here to
tell their terrifying story of survival, surrounded by their families as they come to grips with losing everything they own. >> here's where her sink is and my sink. i'm devastated. hurt, numb. >> it's compassion for that pain that's brought robert rust back to his hometown to volunteer his heavy equipment skills on the fire line. >> i'm very connected to the community and the people here. i feel a responsibility to do what i can. >> foyer resources -- fire resources tapped so thin because of the large number of fires burning across the state. the state department of natural resources has called for citizens to help in the fire fight. >> we needed some help to boost and i think we're getting it. >> more than 3,000 people
nationwide have contacted the dnr willing to help. that's good news since this fire grew by 51,000 acres. >> the biggest change is much reduce the wind speeds. >> and that's helping crews get a stronger hand on this relentless fire. weather conditions are important there. that report from cnn affiliate, komo in seattle. in less than 100 days world leaders will meet to discuss global warming it and it can't come soon enough with one island nation that's dealing with the extreme effects of climate change. why do we work to deliver clinically studied products to fill the world's nutrition gaps? why do we insist on the most stringent quality checks, period? well, here's why. celebrating 80 years of quality life and quality products. now save big on some of the world's best nutritional products, when you buy one, you get one half off,
welcome back to cnn "newsroom." saturday mark 100 days until world leaders come together in paris at top 21. that is a conference that is being hailed as the last chance, the last chance to avert a climate catastrophe. it is hoped that will come up with a plan to combat global warming. in 2009, a similar conference
failed. climate change has caused countries all over the world to experience extreme heat waves these past few months but for the tiny marshall islands it brings with it more than extreme weather, it threatens their lives and their culture. we look at the dangers they are facing. ♪ ♪ >> this is the marshall islands, a country way out in the pacific. it's already super tiny and it's about to get smaller. why is that? the country is sinking or the ocean is rising depending on how you look at it. way out here, there's no room for debate. climate change is real and people see it happening now. >> we were in the house when the water came in. >> when i looked out the window, wow, i was so scared. i was just looking for my children to get out. >> there was water on the bed
that i sleep on. it was kind of like a dream but it was real. >> reporter: on my visit to the islands, everybody had a story to tell about rising seas, disappearing beaches and frequent flooding the islands just barely peek out above sea level, if sea levels rise just a meter or two, this country will no longer exist. if you are this woman, arkansas, springdale to be exact. >> since the 1980s, the marshallese have been coming to spring dale. 10,000 marshallese live in this area. there's actually a government consulate and with climate change, more people are probably on the way.

world. we begin this hour with those high-level talks in the korean demilitarized zone. round two now under way. this effort is to prevent war from breaking out there. delegates from both north and south korea met for ten hours on saturday, and even as talks resume today to ease these sclagses, the tensions between these two countries, their milts remain on high alert. let's go straight to seoul, south korea, our kathy novak is standing by live following the developments. as these talks resume on one hand, you have information about the military -- military movement that's happening. >> reporter: yes. this is from south korea's defense ministry, george. they are basically saying that the north koreans are wearing two faces, being two-faced because they are sitting in the room having these high-level talks, trying to defuse the tensions, south korea has information that north korea in
the time since they asked for the talks to happen has doubled the number of artillery forces on the frontline and 70% of its submarine units have left their bases. what south korea is saying is north korea is beefing up its military capabilities while they are trying to defuse the tensions. of course, at the same time, north korea has been demanding for south korea to shut down its propaganda speakers, to stop blasting those anti regime messages across the border and even as south korea is in these talks, it is also continuing that campaign and it also has its troops on high alert. so there may be hopes around the talks themselves, but the situation in general, george, is still extremely tense. >> the land mines and the loud speakers, that incident, and the loud speakers that north korea wants shut down, that seems to be front and center, but do you have any reason to believe that there may be more involved in these talks, a bigger scope of
conversation? >> reporter: well, when they stopped yesterday at 4:00 a.m. local time, george, what we were told is that they were having broad discussions about how to defuse the recent tensions but also general discussions on the future of north and south korea relations. the people inside the room are very important people both on the north and south korean side. on the north korean side, you have the political head of the army and someone very much in the inner circle of kim jung un someone to be able to speak for the north korean leader, as well as another man. what that suggests is these are people who can have the authority to discuss how they might come to an agreement to bring down this level of tension that has been rising and rising and rising over the past few
days and weeks. since they are there, they don't come together and talk very often the if at all, this is an opportunity to perhaps go over other things that are causing simmering tensions in the relationship. we know south and north korea can agree on much. they are still in there talking as we speak, george. >> kathy novak there for us live in seoul, south korea. for more context on these negotiations, we spoke earlier with stephen hagger, he is the director of the korean pacific program at the university of california in san diego and here's what he had to say about the issue. >> the first thing that's got to happen is some accounting for the august 4th mine attack. i don't think we're going to get far unless there can be some agreement on that. now, it may be fuzzy, it may be that the north koreans say we didn't do it and we promise not to do it again if you get my
meaning, but something is going to have to happen on that front. now, on the other hand, president park has tried to initiate what she calls a trust polliteke ever since she came into office. she's attempted a variety of initiatives, small level aid things. nothing has come of that. the fact that the talks are entering a second stage means that the agenda is much wider than just the security issues around the dmz. >> we will continue to follow the negotiations in the dmz and we'll bring you updates throughout the day here on cnn. french media are identifying the man who tried to massacre passengers on board a train that was bound for paris on friday. his name ayoub el khazzani. he was overpowered by four men as shots were fired from a rifle.
earlier, bob baer says it appears it was some part of a terror network. >> i wouldn't call this a lone wolf attack. it certainly wasn't well planned. what is concerning is he had a lot of ammunition, and he did have a pistol and those things aren't easy to pick up in europe without some sort of network. >> the men who subdued the gunman include three americans. they are being hailed as heroes for their quick thinking stopping this potential attack. let's go straight to nik robertson, he joins us with more. nick, this attack has not been classified as a case of terrorism yet. what is the latest on the investigation from your understanding? >> reporter: yeah, sure, the french officials here are not calling it that just yet. there are indications the gunman is trying to sort of claim that he -- according to some media
accounts, that he's claiming that he was just on an armed robbery and he had -- expedition. his track record in europe and france where he's living and in bell yum there was a group that he was associated with, radical islamists that were being investigated by belgian authorities, the fact that he traveled to turkey earlier this year, believed to have made contact with a french isis-related group and may have even gotten into syria. all of the factors so far point to this to an act of terrorism and that does seem to be the working supposition by the french authorities, although they are not willing to call that just yet. but those are all the indications at the moment, george. >> and nic, what more can you tell us about the men who stopped this potential attack, these men who are being hailed as heroes? >> reporter: sure.
spencer stone was the one who was worst injured, he was cut in the hand and neck and had a severe injury with his thumb. his thumb was described as almost cut off. he was in the hand surgery clinic not far from where the train came to an eeventual standstill. he didn't look as if he was in any pain when he came out of hospital. and his friends, al ex skarlatos and anthony sadler were helping the police in a nearby town giving them all the information they could about this gunman and everything they did to tackle him and bring him down. we were outside the police station yesterday afternoon. there were a group of people outside the police station and when they men these were driving out, people could see who they are, there was a big round of applause and cheering. that's what we've seen here. there is so much support, if you will, for these men, all three
of them, and the british who tackled this man on the ground. we've had people come up to us is and say well-done to the police and to these men. there is a real sense that they saved a lot of lives. this could have been far worse and if you got on the one hand the people on the french street applauding them, they are going to the other extreme on monday, they get to meet the french president at the palace. the prime minister there, foreign minister, the interior minister, the transport minister. they are really getting the rock star treatment and beyond here, george. >> nic robertson live for us in paris. thank you so much for your reporting there. investigators are looking into what caused a deadly accident at an air show in southeastern england. it was all caught on tape. you can see it here in the video on saturday this vintage aircraft, it crashed on to a busy main road near an airfield. you see it there.
the pilot survived, but remains in critical condition. seven other people died in that accident. let's go to our correspondent, ian lee who is live in shoreham england with more on that crash. when you see that video, it's horrific to see what happened there. what more can you tell us about the investigation? >> reporter: really, it's horrific watching those final moments of that plane right before it hits the highway and this is a major highway and behind me you can see the highway, the investigation taking place. this weather, as you can see, it's raining, it's going to make it a bit more difficult to gather this evidence around the crash site and we were hearing from authorities last night, telling us that there is the likelihood that they can find more bodies. the explosion was large. there was still a lot of
uncertainty. seven people were killed. 14 injured, and as you said that pilot miraculously survived the crash. they pull him out of the wreckage. we're learning a bit more about that pilot today. local media is reporting it as andy hill. this is a veteran of the oil air force. he was a flight instructor. one of the top pilots really in the u.k., and the pilot who has had a lot of experience with this hawker hunter aircraft that was being flown as well, so investigators are watching the videos that we have been seeing, looking at pictures, trying to determine what happened. i talk to one witness last night who told me that you could just tell that something was wrong with the aircraft as it was coming down, as it was doing that maneuver, that it didn't have enough speed to pull up and this is an airfield, which is just about 100 meters away from the site of the crash, which has had several accidents in the
past, and because of that, there are rules that aerobat iks could not be flown over crowds of people, over highways, so investigators are going to be looking into that why this loop maneuver was performed over this highway but with this rain that is going to slow down that investigation, george. >> that's the question. they are still trying to figure out why it was flying over the highway and that's a big part of the investigation, yes? >> yeah. that's right. these planes aren't supposed to do it. they are supposed to be approximate performing over open fields and looking around me there are quite a few of those out there. that is one part and you see that final moments of that plane. this is a plane that also has an ejection seat. that ejection seat wasn't fired so it looks like from watching the video that the pilot until the very last moment tried to avoid that highway. tried to void hitting those
cars, but that huge explosion causing a lot of damage and this road is going to be closed for quite sometime because of that explosion. going to be repairing it, and still there's the possibility that still could be more people that have been killed out there. >> cnn's ian lee reporting live for us in shoreham england. thank you so much for your reporting. shelling and rockets in the syrian city of duma have killed at least 50 people. you get a sense of what's happening right there. more explosions could be heard after the initial attack saturday in the rebel heled city. the number of deaths is expected to rise as many people remain buried in the rubble. a monitoring group says the sean regime is responsible although sean has reportedly denied that it attacks its own civilians. you are watching cnn

. welcome back to cnn "newsroom." i'm george howell. we turn now to the latest in the migrant emergency that is gripping europe. thousands of refugees are getting on buses and trains headed north from macedonia and further into europe. the group of migrants stranded at the border for two days became desperate and over ran police. officers used stun grenades and batons to drive the crowds back but it was no match for the influx. the u.n. says macedonia is organizing the refugees transportation. italy has led the rescue of nearly 3,000 migrants in the mediterranean. the italian coast guard says nearly 2 dozen boats asked for help on saturday in the waters off the coast of libya. some italian politicians are not
happy with the revocation -- rescue. they are not happy because some of these are saying these boats are going too close to libya. what more can you tell us? >> reporter: let me just update you on the numbers. we've heard within the last hour that essentially since friday afternoon, in less than 48 hours, the italian authorities and also norwegian ships have been able to rescue as many as 4,400 people from the mediterranean sea. now, as far as the italian politicians goes, this really is right-wing politicians from the northern league and another party. one of these politicians is saying these ships and the coast guard and other european ships are going so close to the libyan close that all the human traffickers have to do is launch
these ding his many of them very unseaworthy off the coast and all they have to do is pick them up. one italian politician is suggesting they don't be allowed to reach italian soil, that they be put on board disused italian oil rigs in the mediterranean where they would be fed, taken care, but not allowed to reach italy. that's very similar to australia's approach to migrants, one that is very controversial to say the least, but it continues to be a real political hot potato here in italy with many people saying that the country simply cannot afford to take any more migrants, which is somewhat ironic. i just got back from sicily where there some tounses have become depopulated because of
the low birth rate, stagnant economy, where these towns are set -- are selling houses for one euro apiece on the condition that you pay to refurbish them. you have on the one hand a dwindling population in places like italy and thousands, 104,000 people this year trying to reach italy for a better life. so very difficult situation. nobody seems to agree on how to deal with it. the insight from your trip there certainly does add some context, ben, to what we're seeing. so you explained the political aspect of this, but we're seeing these images of people who are making very, very desperate trips, desperate attempts to get out of harms way. can you talk to us about the dangerous journeys these people we are seeing here are facing? >> certainly. the people leaving syria they
are fleeing a war that's been going on for four years, that has left as many as 300,000 people dead. millions made homeless. they are fleeing things like these barrel bombs used by the assad regime. some of them are going through libya, others through turkey, up through there into macedonia and greece so on. others crossing the sea. it's expensive, to make these crossings in the dingheys people are paying thousands of dollars for a trip that may leave them in the water and drowning. it's important to keep in mind over the last 48 hours, there's no reports of deaths at least there's some silver lining in the story. people fleeing mandatory open-ended military service in eritrea. they have to go across the sahara desert almost as dangerous as crossing the
mediterranean as well. it's extremely difficult and expensive journey and once they get to europe, they don't know what they are actually going to do. the italian economy, the greek economy are in very bad shape. many of them would like to reach germany, the united kingdom where the social welfare system and the economies are in much better shape, but certainly what we're seeing is rising resistance across europe to giving to opening -- to opening the door to people who really do desperately need to reach safety. >> our ben wederman reporting live for us. now to the united states and wild fires. nearly 160,000 hectares, that's some 395,000 acres, an area that is half the size the entire state of rhode island or roughly as twice as big as the city of berlin, it's burning in north central washington, state of
washington. u.s. president barack obama declared a wildfire emergency in that state. some 200 military personnel are helping firefighters as well. earlier this week, three firefighters lost their lives trying to fight these flames that you see. a national incident management team has arrived to look into the deaths of these firefighters. turning also to weather, typhoon goni, it is intensifying. barreling toward japan, tearing through the philippines and eastern taiwan. emergency officials say several people were killed in the philippines. our alison chinchar is following the developments there. as goni strengthens it's bad news. >> they are going to see the brunt of this storm. you can see that clearly on this graphic. you can see goen any on the left-hand side of the screen and
asani will stay over the sea. here are the current statistics. it has increase nd last couple of years, up to 165 kilometer per hour winds, gusting up to 205 kilometers per hour. northward movement about 11 kilometers per hour. more importantly take a look at the eye of the storm. it has really become very intense and very clear in just the last few frames and that's a very good indicator of how it's strengthened and one of reasons why it's been able to strength season a lot of what you are seeing there. all the bright colors, the pinks, reds, yellows, that is unfavorable area for a cyclone to move through, however the blue area which is exactly where goni is located is a very favorable type of atmosphere for a storm. so it has just now started to enter more of that favorable atmosphere and that's really
what's allowed it to be able to intensify as it has the last few hours. here is a look at the track making its way toward the arc pel ago places like okinawa in the next 24 hours, making its way toward the korean peninsula and the sea of japan more than 48 hours from now. forecast accumulations, taiwan has already picked up at least 100 millimeters of rain, they are expected to pick up about another 100 millimeters additional on top of that. philippines, those are the areas that really picked up the most rain from this. loag picked up 160 millimeters of rain. that's up to two feet of rain. most of that came within 72 hours. that's why they had such bad flooding problems and landslides in that area. >> rain that fast is hard to handle. allison, thank you so much. you are watching cnn "newsroom."

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. you are watching cnn if you see room. good to have you with us. i'm george howell. the headline we're fog this hour. three americans and one britton are being hailed as heroes for stopping an attack on a train bound for paris. one of men, spencer stone almost had his thumb cut off as he tackled the gunman. four people were wounded from
that attack. italy, norway, and the group doctors without borders have rescued some 4,400 migrants from the mediterranean since friday. italian coast guard said nearly 2 dozen boats asked for help alone in the waters off the libyan coast. thousands of demonstrators gathered in lebanon on saturday protesting against the government for not cleaning up garbage in the capital city there. 35 officers were injured with demonstrates turned violent. beirut has been left with mounting piles of garbage because politicians can't agree on where to dump it. delegates from north and south korea are meeting for high-level talks. these talks are aimed at easing flared tensions between the two countries as south korean military official said today that north korea has double
artillery forces on its front lines while the talks are happening. the men sent to negotiating table are top officials from north and south korea. we have more on the two end vois from the north. >> kim jung un supreme commander, but look closer and one face appears prominently and consistently in his inner circle. the 0e6-something-year-old old is hwang pyong so, walking by his side. general hwang is the newest international deputy. if there was anyone that kim jung un would send its hwang. he rocketed from simple desk job to a four-star general, director of the korean people's army
despite having little known military experience. his top negotiator with the outside world. >> he can speak with the authority of kim jung un. this is as high as you can go and he has the longest history or the best idea about what kim jong un wants and what he's hoping to get out of it. so this is very significant that he is actually there. >> if hwang is the regime's new blood, the man next to him is the tie to north korean history. kim yang gon has been a steady face. kim, a regime survivor, living through the dictators purge or execution of unwanted advisers. his appearance may signal this. the north korea doesn't want to get rid of south korea's
propaganda speakers at dmz, negotiators may talk about the topic of family reunions or sanctions imposed on north korea. today, the two men are a glimpse into an isolated regime stepping into a rare meeting of a divided people. cnn, seoul. a suicide attack has killed at least 12 people in the afghan capital, including three american contractors. a car bomb detonated outside a kabul health clinic on saturday. it wounded more than 60 civilians. police say civilians and a nato envoy of contractors were the targets of this bombing. the u.s. embassy in kabul condemned attack. as we mentioned a moment ago, protesters, protests they are happening over weeks of uncollected garbage that led to dozens of injuries saturday in lebanon. thousands gathered in beirut. you see the images here. they are protesting against the
government for its lack of clean-up in the capital and other parts of the country. the city has been left with mounting pile of garbage because the politicians there, they can't agree on where to dump that trash. the ministry of interior says 35 police officers were injured by rocks and fireworks thrown by protesters, they used water canyons and tear gas to zpurs the proficient testers near parliament. >> joining me as a crowd not particularly large in number but relatively active in term of what they are trying to achieve is outside what you can't see, the prime minister's residence. that's behind the fence. you can see three or four men with their shirts off. some with actually clubs. they have been moving the razor wire toward them. that's between them and the police, perhaps a good sign for a quieter day here because
yesterday there was nothing between the riot police and the protesters as those clashes broke out. we saw ourselves how's the use of tear gas and an extraordinarily large amount of shots fired in the air. that led to tensions in the very heart of beirut. this is the times square of the capital of lebanon. you talk about garbage being the major reason for these protests. that's true to some extent. we saw three, four weeks ago how you could not breathe in streets of beirut, the garbage has risen so high, because are they weren't sure they could use the sites to take this trash. what we've seen by them is another attempt to pull the
razor wire back. the police are not responding at this stage. this shows the sheer volume of anger on the streets it's because those politicians. >> able to find a new site for the garbage. there are talks of smells emanating from the port. a real sense of collapse, frankly and this is a government whose collecting trash was one of the minor responsibilities. this country has been without its most senior official for the long period of time, the anger on the streets, saw last year how water wasn't able available, you could physically smell the decay of the political elite in the piles of trash that were piling up around all around the
city. now here you have the small number, this protests is predominantly young, pulling this razor wire back. there are on strict orders. they don't want to see anyone firing ammunition above or around the protesters but we are clearly hearing from a prime minister as well saying he will hold those responsible for last night's violence to account within the security services. the security services for their part have talked about dozens of injured on their side, rocks were thrown, that's fair to say. i saw some police injured, but it does seem like coming to the number of ambulances we saw moving around, a lot of protesters were injured. the lebanese red cross tweeting at least 5. beirut does seem extraordinarily tense given the level of population felt level of tension
by the population. >> this live look from nick peyton walsh as he explain what's happening there. we continue to follow the situation and hoping the trash gets moved on. a short time ago, british foreign secretary phillip hammond reopened the embassy in tehran. it had been closed since november 2011 when demonstrators ransacked it in protest. we go to london with more from outside the iranian embassy. fred, first of all, could you talk to us about the symbolism and significance of what we are about to see there in landon -- london but from what we're seeing in tehran. >> it certainly is significant, george. it is part of iran really opening up to the west and
improving its relations with the west which of course great britain is a very large part of. and this embassy opening, especially the one opening up in tehran is very significant because the british embassy there was raided in 2011 by a very angry mob, some of them with the militias, a hard line radical my lash i can't on the ground there. it is something that caused a throt of controversy in iran and caused relations between iran and the united kingdom to sour. the reason why they happened in the first place was because international sanctions and specifically sanctions by the u.k. were levied against iran due to the nuclear program. since that nuclear agreement, you've seen western officials pour into the iranian capital. you've had the german vice chancellor who is also the economics minister bringing with
us -- with him, a lot of german business leaders. all of them want a piece of the pie of this gigantic market. now you have the british foreign secretary there, the embassy there reopening again. it is a very, very big step in that greater scheme of iran moving toward the west. the ceremony here in london is going to be a lot lower key than the one in tehran. there's an event that's going to happen in 45 minutes. certainly the big event is happening in tehran today. fred, because of your recent travels and reporting in tehran, talk to us about what the feeling is as iran opens to the west, what's the significance and what is the feeling among people there as this embassy now reopens there? >> i think it's very significant for them.
one of things we have to keep in mind that the iranians, the majority of the people there have felt quite isolated from the outside world. it doesn't mean that their economy has been falling apart but it certainly has made things a lot more difficult for many people, and at the same time, of course, one of the things that i think many people kind of lose sight of when we have these international debates is that there is a lot of internal politics in iran as well. on the one hand, you have reformers like the ruhani government, who have the majority of the population behind them when they want better ties with the west, when they want sanctions lifted. on the other hand, though, you have some very politically powerful hard liners as well. for instance, the supreme leader of the country, ayatollah komeni and the guard.
they felt that they shouldn't give up too much for a nuclear agreement. so there were these political dynamics but by and large you have a hope of feeling among the iranians that things are going to improve economically and that will also bring a lot of ease politically as well. >> fred, thank you so much for your insights from your travels in tehran and from your reporting this hour. stay with cnn "newsroom." more news from around the world just after the break.
it was ten years ago today that hurricane katrina formed off the coast of florida. and it was a monday store storm. new orleans took the brunt of that storm and it killed more than 18 oork people but ten years later, the big easy is bustling once more. it is brimming with tourists again. the mayor of new orleans says his city has come a long way but there is still more work to be done. >> lots of almost every neighborhood in the city is coming back in a strong way. we have not solved all the problems that we've had built up over the past 40 or 50 years. we're heading in the right direction now. >> hurricane katrina was the costliest gnarl disaster in the united states. in the race for the next u.s. president, the rumors are intensifying that vice president joe biden may make a possible
bid for the presidency. in a surprise move on saturday, the vice president made a last-minute trip to washington for a private political meeting. his official schedule said that he would be at his home in delaware this weekend. an theen in a jones has more on this latest sign that joe biden may be considering a run. >> we know that the he the vice president met with senator elizabeth warren. massachusetts. it's interesting because senator warren has become something of a liberal icon. she has a lot of fans, fans who were pushing her to make a run for the white house in 2016. she is going to sit this election out but she hasn't endorsed any candidate and so we don't know what biden and warren discussed but we do know that biden has told his associates that he's going to make a decision about whether to make a third run for the presidency in the next month. we're told his advisers have told him that he's got to decide by october 1st.
we know that biden is watching this race very closely. he's got to see the appeal of another liberal senator, bernie sanders, who is drawing huge crowds, inspiring a lot of enthusiasm and he's also got to be looking at the numbers. numbers like hillary clinton's unfavorability ratings. take a look at our recent cnn poll. you can see there that 53% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of hillary clinton, versus just 44% for joe biden. i should also mention in that poll more than half of democratic voters say that biden should get into the race. but of course it's a big decision. running for president requires organization and fundraising. joe biden feels he will make a good president but of course he wants to run to win. he doesn't want to run to make hillary clinton a better candidate. we'll all be waiting to see what that decision is in about a month or so. back to you. athena jones there. ahead here on cnn "newsroom." a woman in labor is often told to breathe through the pain, but
